Jacques Favre Set to be Named FFN National Technical Director

In September Lionel Horter abruptly resigned from his position as the National Technical Director (DTN) of the French Swimming Federation (FFN).

In early November the FFN started their search for a new DTN and by the end of November had 17 applicants for the job.

On January 23rd the three finalists for the job were announced, which included Roxana Maracineanu, Philippe Hellard and Jacques Favre.

Jacques Favre is the director of the sports commission of the Cercle des Nageurs de Marseille, the club that houses Florent Manaudou, Fabien Gilot, Fred Bousquet, Camille Lacourt, Mehdy Metella, Grégory Mallet, and Giacomo Perez-Dortona, amongst others.
